Sometimes a formula becomes very long and it occupies lots of cells and it makes you crazy. So a better way would be
1. Record a macro, give a proper name, description and most importantly define a shortcut key, different from Excel’s shortcut keys.
2. Don’t record anything and stop the recording.
3. Press Alt + F11 to open the Visual Basic Editor , search for your macro inside “Modules” and insert this code in your macro.

If Application.DisplayFormulaBar Then
Application.DisplayFormulaBar = False
Application.DisplayFormulaBar = True
That’s it. Whenever you’re done editing the formula just press the shortcut key to bring it back press it again.
If you want to do it manually, please follow these steps:
1. Click on Tools – on the menu
2. Click on Options
3. In the View Tab uncheck Formula Bar
4. Hit ok.
